Describe the bug
A clear and concise description of what the bug is.
ThreeFingerClick to Middle Click not reliable, when Tap To Click is enabled in OSx Setting. Sometimes opening a new Tab in Safari works, but sometimes another tab is being opened and sometimes the site is being opened directly with the middle click.
If I want to make it work 100% I need to
- Go to the link
- Put my three fingers on the trackpad
- Wait half a second until they get recognized
- Then Three finger click
What doesn't work well.
- Go to the link
- Directly Three finger click(without putting the 3 fingers on the trackpad and waiting half a second)
--> This causes problems in the 2-6 link I am clicking in Safari to let it open in a new tba.
However when the OSx Setting "Tap to click" is disabled the Middle Click with ThreeFingerClick to open Links in Tabs in Safari seems working fine. In this mode I can directly 3-Finger Click on the links (without waiting after putting my 3 Fingers on the trackpad) without any issues. But Iam highly dependent on the tap to click feature, so I cannot disable it to get a better middle click experience.
This is very annoying. On my old Macbook 2011 without the force to touch trackpad I had no problems middle clicking on links to open them in tabs with the same settings, while the tap to click feature was enabled in OSx.
This problem has been described also in the previous GitHub forum: (https://github.com/folivoraAI/BetterTouchTool/issues/1739)
A fix would be great, because it is very frustration and I am right now more fast with using command key and tapping the link.
